  1. The 5 Best Songs Of The Week
    This week was brutal here in NYC as the city got hit with widespread panic and potentially unstoppable plague. Yes, dear readers, CMJ is back! We also had our hands full with plenty of great songs, including a few that didn’t make our 5 Best. There are two songs in particular that deserve a mention, [...]






  2. Watch Ryan Adams Play “Stay With Me” — His, Not Sam Smith’s — In A Spotify Session
    “Stay With Me” is one of the most Bryan-Adams-y songs on Ryan’s new highly Bryan-esque self-titled LP. It is not a cover of the Sam Smith song; in fact, there’s a good chance Adams has never heard Smith’s “Stay With Me” and doesn’t know who Smith is. Anyway, the live version of Adams’ own “Stay [...]






  3. Watch Depeche Mode Play “Enjoy The Silence” From New Live In Berlin Concert Film
    Depeche Mode employed longtime visual director Anton Corbijn to film two concerts at O2 World Berlin last November, and he’s compiling his footage into a new concert film called Live In Berlin. The movie’s out on DVD 11/17, but the band shared a clip of “Enjoy The Silence” to stoke our anticipation. And it does! [...]

  5. Watch Drake Join PartyNextDoor At SOB’s, Do The Shmoney Dance At His Dave & Buster’s Birthday Party
    Drake turns 28 today, so last night, after making a surprise guest appearance with his OVO Sound artist PartyNextDoor at legendary New York rap venue SOB’s, he headed to Dave & Buster’s in Times Square for his birthday party. As Fader points out, there he did Bobby Shmurda’s trademark Shmoney Dance while wearing a very [...]






  6. CMJ Releases Statement On Ebola
    Yesterday, we learned the troubling news that Dr. Craig Spencer, the first New York resident to test positive for Ebola, had been out on Wednesday night at the Gutter, a Williamsburg bowling alley that had been hosting unofficial CMJ events. The coming shows at the Gutter were all canceled, with good reason. But the people [...]






  7. Watch David Gilmour & Nick Mason Preview New Pink Floyd In Endless River Teaser
    So far Pink Floyd have shared one song from farewell album The Endless River, “Louder Than Words.” The latest teaser video with David Gilmour and Nick Mason doesn’t reveal an entire track, but there are snippets of several unreleased songs. They also talk about the making of the album and how they didn’t want to [...]






  8. Led Zeppelin – “Rock And Roll” Video
    I love Led Zeppelin, but I’d say there’s a good third of their catalog that I can’t hear anymore. I don’t mean I don’t want to listen to it; I mean I cannot hear it — I’ve heard it so much that it’s just white noise, like the sounds of midtown traffic outside Stereogum’s offices. [...]






  9. Morrissey Contends With “Shockingly Abysmal” Italian Venues, Shops World Peace Re-Release
    Morrissey’s latest True To You monologue includes a takedown of the venues he played on tour in Rome and Milan (“both abysmal — Milan quite shockingly abysmal”), but it’s more positive than your average Moz bitch-sesh. He also expresses an “over-emotional thanks” for those who attended his shows in Italy, Spain, and Portugal: “It has [...]






  10. CMJ: Twin Peaks, Happyness, Nai Harvest @ Rough Trade 10/23/14
    Yesterday was a disgusting day in New York, and this is coming from someone whose favorite season is winter: wet coldness due to the obnoxiously persistent rain, and a particularly bone-cutting kind of wind (especially if you were, like me, near the East River). Given that, spending the day indoors, at an afternoon showcase at [...]
